Capítulo do úmero - Capitulum humeri

Descrição

The condyle of humerus is the whole distal end except the epicondyles.

The condyle articulates with the radius and ulna forming the elbow joint.

In dog and cats, the condyle is divided in two parts:

  • The trochlea, the medial part, that articulates with ulna
  • The capitulum, the lateral part; that articulates with radius

In ungulates, the condyle is divided by sagittal ridges.
